Assembly Instructions:

Block Science, as a pioneering extension of the unit blocks system, adds a rich introduction to physics and essential cognitive development to traditional classroom block play. The Foundation Sets are designed to exercise early engineering concepts, collaboration, and the study of matter, omotion and mathematics. Plastic building and roadway clips stabilize builds, drawbridges and loops to enable taller, sturdier and more mobile tracks and builds. Simplified, wooden cars with soft plastic wheels easily glide across the solid wood tracks while carrying algebraic people designed for mathematical and dramatic play activities. Each Foundation Set includes Concept Cards for building examples and language associations. Ages 3+

  • Block Science Foundation Set B contains 92 pieces: 12 roadway curves, 4 roadway units, 4 roadway ramps, 4 roadway double unit, 2 exit/entrance ramps, 1 roadway switcher A, 1 roadway switcher B, 1 roadway intersection, 2 cars, 8 wheel clips, 4 rope hitches, 14 block clips, 3 hinge clips, 26 roadway clips, 2 adults and 4 children
  • Composed of smooth sanded beech wood and rubberwood pieces and over-molded Enhance and expand on traditional block play
  • Smooth sanded beech wood roadways connect with plastic roadway clips
  • Over-molded plastic building clips create stable builds and fit standard unit blocks
  • Algebraic people have symbols for math activities or differentiation during dramatic play
  • Introduction of drawbridge, intersection, and roadway switch pieces encourage complex building and play
  • Develop fine motor skills, early engineering concepts, teamwork, collaboration, spatial thinking, problem solving, and STEM concepts
  • Requires standard unit blocks for proper building experience
  • Unit Block Set B by Guidecraft corresponds with Foundation Set B
  • Ages 3+
